Bahrain to build modern, affordable housing units

MANAMA, November 12, 2016

Bahrain is working on a new social housing project in the southern governorate, which will see the construction of a modern residential area for its nationals, said a report.

The country continues to make significant progress in fast-tracking residential development projects, reported the BNA citing His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister.

He was speaking during his visit to the project site along with the Prince of Wales.

The Crown Prince highlighted Bahrain’s commitment to ensuring the availability of modern and affordable housing across the kingdom, which is why the government, in its current action plan, has pledged to deliver an unprecedented 25,000 housing units, said the report.

The project will see the construction of a modern residential area in collaboration with Prince of Wales’ Foundation for Building Community.

Prince Charles’s foundation has overseen large-scale housing projects in the UK and is currently advising on homes in Bahrain's southern governorate and other development projects across different parts of the kingdom.

The Crown Prince stressed that Bahrain was delighted that the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, was actively contributing to this goal by engaging with the Ministry of Housing and local communities to design a new residential area in the Southern Governorate.

The Minister of Housing, who accompanied the Crown Prince and Prince Charles during their visit, remarked that the southern town housing project was symbolic of the productive and mutually beneficial relationship between Bahrain and the UK, stated the report.

During the visit, the Crown Prince and Prince Charles inspected housing prototype units, it added.
